Recent U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania Mark Green Named Managing Director of Malaria No More Policy Center
Date:2/2/2009

WASHINGTON, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mark Green, recent U.S. Ambassador to the United Republic of Tanzania, joins Malaria No More as the new Managing Director of the Malaria No More Policy Center in Washington, DC, the non-profit organization announced today. Green brings unparalleled experience and insight into the fight against malaria in Africa to his new role at the Policy Center, where he will shape Malaria No More's advocacy work to engage policymakers in the race to save lives from this preventable and treatable disease.

During Green's tenure as Ambassador to Tanzania, the East African nation celebrated the first-ever official visit by a sitting U.S. president, a dramatic reduction in malaria incidence and deaths on the Islands of Zanzibar and the launch of a nationwide campaign to distribute mosquito nets to all children under five. Green has worked closely with President Kikwete and the Tanzanian National Malaria Control Program, as well as U.S. organizations like USAID and the President's Malaria Initiative, to address the malaria crisis in Tanzania.

"We are thrilled that Mark is bringing his energy and expertise to the Malaria No More Policy Center," said Peter Chernin, Chairman of Malaria No More. "His intimate, behind-the-scenes knowledge of both Washington and Tanzania give the Policy Center a unique perspective on how policymakers can help wipe out the scourge of malaria in Africa. Mark is a key addition to the stellar team that our CEO, Scott Case, is building to help support global efforts to end malaria deaths."

In a statement, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold said, "I congratulate Ambassador Green on his new position, and I am confident that the Malaria No More Policy Center will benefit greatly from Mark's wealth of experience. Mark's commitment to the elimination of malaria is well established and the strong leadership and dedication he has shown on this issue are exactly what is needed if we are to be successful in preventing malaria from taking any more lives."

Green has a long record of public service and international policy, serving as a four-term Congressman from Wisconsin and as an active member of the House International Relations Committee through his work on the subcommittees for Africa and human rights and his help in crafting the U.S. Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Act of 2003. Additionally, Green has traveled to West Africa with international organizations including the Academy for Educational Development, Oxfam and Save the Children to work on programs related to women's health and education in Africa and served as an election observer in Kenya in 2005.

"I look forward to working with Malaria No More and its partners to fight this disease and bring hope to the millions of families in Africa who battle it every day," said Mr. Green. "I have seen first-hand how U.S. assistance to fight malaria in Africa has changed lives and improved livelihoods. I will work to ensure that the Malaria No More Policy Center takes every opportunity to raise awareness and help build support for efforts to eliminate this devastating disease."
